    I voted for the matching flowers different dress. If you decide to use the bouquets to decorate the cake table or something it’s more cohesive if they are the same. Plus, it’s nice to let your girls choose different styles that work for their body types.

    I voted different flowers because that is so unique!  I’ve never heard of that before!  I’m a big fan of doing things differently 🙂

    I voted different dress, same flowers. I think you will find it less expensive to do the same flowers for every girl. I could be wrong, but that is my understanding of how florists work. I also think the different dresses will be more noticeable and allow the girls to get what they are comfortable in. In some ways the different flowers are too subtle.

    I voted for different dresses and same flowers.  I think it’s great to allow bridesmaids to pick their own dresses or for you to pick a style that is best for their body type.  I let my girls pick their own dresses- which was cheaper for them and they have a dress they will definitely wear again.  By doing the same flowers, it ties the whole look together.

     I went same flowers, different dress. Unless you’ve got identical twins for BMs then I’m sure everyone would be happier in a dress that flatters them. Also, someone else pointed it out, it may be cheaper to do the same kind of flower.

    I actually did both, and it looked great. Each girl had a different set of flowers from my bouquet.

    I love the idea of having a different style for each girl with matching bouquets. You can then be sure that each girl, feels a little special as well as more comfortable in a dress that they can call there own, and maybe that will help them get more wear out of later. Different dresses all the way!

    My girls wore the same dress in different colors.  My florist matched the bouquets to their dresses using flowers that were in my bouquet..I love the way it turned out!

    I like different dresses for BMs because everyone has different taste and body styles. What looks good on one preson doesn’t on another possibly. Plus the pictures look so cool with different dresses. The matching flowers brings it all together in my mind.
